! >>> was president obama so focused on reelection that he was missing in action during the libya terror strike? this is special report. >>> i'm john roberts in for bret baier. the terror attack against the u.s. mission in benghazi is our topic. testimony on capitol hill has ignited a fresh round of debate today. what's not going away are questions about last year's terror attack in libya after panetta's final testimony yesterday. >> if i were a family member and one of my loved ones was killed in benghazi, i would be sick to my stomach. >> republican lindsey graham declared on twitter the president, quote, has to announce for his leadership on benghazi after panetta and general martin dempsey testified, they spoke to the president only once during the eight-hour attack. >> one time. >> right. >> you talked to him how many times? >> the same one time. >> graham and his republican colleagues repeatedly pressed panetta on why there was no direct follow up with mr. obama after they met in the oval office. >> are you surprised that the president of the united states never called you, secretary pent
follow closely. he was nominated to be the cia director in 1991, and as an obama supporter, i was shocked to find out that he was going to be kept on as the secretary of defense. what he told people, i found, and it was a major reasoning for why i wanted to write this book, what he said is that we are moving towards a smaller military. one that will do fewer things than be able to go fewer places, which he thought was a terrible thing and he added that he didn't want to be a part of that kind of a system that is going to retrench. my feeling has always been that we need a smaller military that will do fewer things and go to fewer places. so that is the kind of book that i wanted to write. i thought that i should do it even though others have mined a lot of this. i'm sure a lot of you are familiar with the works who wrote things like the american empire and 10 years before that, john neuhaus, one of my favorite new york writers, wrote imperial america. other books have dealt with this. the background and ascends, i have spent 42 years in the government beyond the state department, defense
this hour. president obama continues to warn the nation about upcoming spending cuts that could go into effect march 1st. in his weekly address to the nation he blamed republicans for the crisis. >> these cuts don't have to happen. congress can turn them off any time with just a little compromise. unfortunately, it appears that republicans in congress have decided that instead of compromising, instead of asking anything of the wealthiest americans, they'd rather let these cuts fall squarely on the middle class. >> republican senator john hoven of north dakota delivered the weekly address and said congress has done its part. >> house republicans have already passed two bills to replace the president's sequester. so the question is why won't he work with with us? and the answer, quite simply, is because he wants higher taxes. >> republican governors meeting today in washington are asking the federal government to solve the spending crisis and not to add to the burden on the states. >> don't pass the balancing the federal budget on the backs of state governments because we're still re
of radioactive substances. president obama immediately called the test a highly provocative act and north korea went ahead with the test in d y defiance of -- even by china. looking ahead, the test will draw more sanctions against the north from the u.s. and other countries. at the live desk, angie goff, news 4. >>> this nuclear test comes as president obama prepares to call for a reduction in america's nuclear arsenal. we learned that he will talk about that proposal tonight during his state of the union address. the white house says the president is putting the finishing touches on the speech. focus will be primarily on the economy. and the billions of dollars in budget cuts set to happen automatically on march 1st. president obama has urged congress to pass a short term agreement to avoid those potentially devastating cuts. now, you may want to avoid driving near the capitol tonight because of the state of the union. capitol police closing several streets starting at 7:00 including constitution avenue between second street east and louisiana avenue northwest. pennsylvania avenue between fir
and blocked president obama as a president. i feel like a democratic president should be able to put into the cabinet who he wants to put in that position. the simple fact is, he is the president. why should a democratic president allow people like lindsey gramm, john mccain, who ran for president -- the federalist papers speaks directly about the filibuster. hamilton's book about this. when a small minority is able to -- is able to stop the progress of the american people, please put somebody in have of them speak on the filibuster. pull some -- put somebody in and have them speak on the filibuster. host: here are some quotes about the luster -- the filibuster. an independent culpa --call from michigan. caller: there are more important issues. i think this is a slap to our presidency and an insult. host: on twitter -- being park, illinois, chris and the republican line. caller: if you look closely at what republicans are objecting to, it is one or two things. especially because mr. hagel is a republican, he looks alarmed getting attacked on those accounts. if he has an honest disagr
threat. the obama administration has focused almost entirely on al qaeda. believing people when they came in and said, look, the only people who can actually give you advice on dealing with these radical folks are islamic believers, he so you must get advice from us. form partnerships with us, let us give you advice, let us tell you how to deal with this threat. and they made great inroads in this administration in that approach. but the blindness of the larger jihadist threat, the enterprise that is being pursued by the muslim brotherhood abroad, has resulted in the practice of drone delivered assassinations of al qaeda figures with what many are questioning or arguing is due process without that. and this administration's repeated declaration that al qaeda is being defeated. they know not of what they speak. the idea that al qaeda is being defeated is helping recruit others who are radical jihadists, because they are able to point to a united states administration that is so blind and so uninformed of what really is going on that they think al qaeda's on the decline when radical jihad i
has placed it in the center of the national debate. michelle obama attended the funeral of hadiya pendleton who was shot to death near her school days after marching in the presidential inaugural parade and pendleton's parents joined mrs. obama as her guest at the state of the union speech last week. president obama returned to his hometown last week to stress the need for action on gun violence. >> last year there were 443 murders with a firearm on the streets of this city. and 65 of those victims were 18 and under. so that's the equivalent of a newtown every four months. >> ifill: in fact, just hours after the president spoke, 18-year-old janay mcfarland was shot and killed in chicago. her 14-year-old sister destiny warren had attendd the president's speech. the fallout from gun violence has extended to politics, as chicago moves toward next week's special election to fill the congressional seat vacated by jesse jackson jr. >> in the race... fill: a gun-control group financed by new york mayor michael bloomberg has spent more than a million dollars on ads attacking candidates th
supplied to the rebels. the concern president obama had lying weapons would in effect be involved in a proxy war supported by iran and russia. the other side of the debate is nothing else is working and we need to create pressure on assad and build relationship with people inside syria who might take over one day. another factor is there are rebels, al-qaeda affiliated rebels the united states and the west doesn't support. and i don't think it's in the west's interest to see them end up at the top of the heap. >> rose: and then we turn to the story of the chinese army spying on the american government and american companies with david sanger of the "new york times," dune lawrence and michael riley of bloomberg businessweek. >> the cyber has been off to the side as something of an annoyance. i'm hearing this has gotten so big it's moving to the center of the relationship and it risks the rest of the relationship. i think the next thing you're going to see the president sending some kind of envoy to beijing to make that point. >> rose: the conflict in syria and spying on the unite
. anyway it came to the attention of the whitehouse, it was discussed president obama decided against it at the time and others who counseled against the proposal including vice president biden, tom dawn lynn who was recently a your show the national security advisor and susan rice. those are kind of the two camps, the whitehouse against the rest of the government as it existed at that time. but now we have a new national security team. >> rose: where was dennis mcdough know. >> i don't know where he was for a fact but i know dennis was very close to president obama. and i would probably put him in the camp of those being cautious about getting more deeply involved in the crises. and i think the argument would have lined up this way. on the side of caution, you know, you would be getting more deeply involved. and i think the concern president obama had was by supplying weapons would be in effect involved in a approximately war against a regime supported by iran and russia. on the other side of the debate the argument was well nothing else is working and we need to increase the press

obama likes and we think it's the best way to get his attention on spending." which is maybe why you're seeing so much political posturing in the days leading up to it. >> no question. the thing that, i think, bugs me and from ezra's comments, him as well, the most about this is while all these political maturations are going on, and sure, you can have great positioning and fights about this spending program and that spending program, nobody's talking about the underlying economy. as i said, the unemployment rate is stuck at 8%. that's way too high. you have millions of people in long-term unemployment, so the idea you're actually engaging in fiscal policy that's hurting an already weak economy so you can have these political fights is antithetical to what i believe policy makers' jobs are. >> it's hard to say we're making a stand when this is a republican senator being quoted on a blind. that's not much of a stance. >> off the record. >> i think the optics of this are both sides are trying to claim a high ground here. we've seen what the president is doing with his bully pulpit all
